The Berlin Wall/Bennett 01-25-05 Throughout the history of the World, there are many great facts, and things to learn. There is an abundance of information out there not only about our country but about the rest of the world also. After researching the Berlin Wall, I was quite interested, and did not realize what I was missing out on about the past history of our world. I am going to share all that I learned about the Berlin Wall, and how it made a difference in our past and future times. The Berlin Wall was built on the night between 12 th and 13 th August 1961. Everyone always asks why the Berlin Wall was built and what did it stand for.
In 1945, following World War II, Germany was divided into two countries – East Germany and West Germany. East Germany was controlled by the communist regime of the Soviet Union while West Germany became a democracy supported by the United States. Berlin, the former capital city, although entirely within East German borders, was also split into two. On August 13, 1961, the German Democratic Republic (GDR) decided to block off East Berlin and West Berlin by means of a barbed wire. Streets were torn up, and barricades erected. Rail lines and the subway between East and West Berlin was torn up.
People of East Berlin and the GDR were no longer allowed to enter West Berlin disrupting 60, 000 commuters who were employed in West Berlin. Within the year, construction work began to build a solid wall separating the two cities. The German Democratic Republic along with 60, 000 commuters, under the leadership of Erich Honecker. The Berlin Wall fell down on November 9 th, 1989. In my opinion, the Berlin Wall was built simply because; Germany was controlled by Communist Regime, and by the Soviet Union.
What Was the Berlin Wall? The Berlin Wall was both the physical division between West Berlin and East Germany from 1961 to 1989 and the symbolic boundary between democracy ... , was celebrated around the world. A Divided Berlin At the end of World War II, the Allied powers divided conquered Germany into four zones ...
Those two groups are not going to get along, and that is why I believe they were split up. Since I learned to read music, and play it well, it has been a large part of my life. I learned that just playing the note on the page perfect is not music. To play music well, you have to feel it in your body, spirit, mind, and soul. The music that has been picked out this year, in my opinion, is the best music I have ever played.
My favorite is 2 nd Dawning, and not just because I have to write about it, but it really is. My reason being is that, it is so emotional. When I compare the Berlin Wall with this piece of music, at the very beginning of the piece up to 123, I think of World War II, and I can just see all of the men out there fighting for our rights, and what they believe in. Starting at 123 up to 147, I see peace between Germany, but yet, there really has never been any peace between them at all.
From 147 to 151 I can see all the people at the wall, waiting together for it to fall down, and for there to finally be reassuring peace. Then 152 to the end of the piece, I see the Wall finally collapsing, and I see happiness spread out through Germany. My main weakness in 2 nd Dawning is 123 to 131. The other is the sextuplet runs from 147 to 151. How I will fix them, well, the only thing you can do is practice. “Practice makes perfect,” they say.
I have looked forward to music like this my entire four years throughout high school band. But more than practicing, I know myself that I have to want to be able to play the music, to really be able to play it correctly. There have been times I haven’t been able to play some music, and I have searched in my heart, listening to the other parts in the band, and found somewhere, the willingness to play it. Then, it just comes out. The key is, is that, you will never achieve anything, unless deep inside of you, you really want it, in you heart. I have learned a great deal about the Berlin Wall, and how it affected our country, and other countries.
It is most certainly true, that you learn something new everyday. Along with 2 nd Dawning and the other music we are playing, I learn something in it everyday also. I never really compared a piece of music with something big that’s happened in our world. It almost makes me think about watching a movie, like a war movie, and I can hear here the music while watching the tragic and big parts of the movie, and even the softest and sweetest part of a movie, I can hear the flutes and clarinets in the back ground. Here something to think about. What would this world be without music? ￼.
